Baptistery: Baptism of Christ

c. 1350
Basilica di San Marco, Venice

During Andrea Dandolo's dogate (1343-1354), attention focused on a radical reconstruction and mosaic decoration of the Baptistery in San Marco, which was definitely finished before the death of Dandolo, the last doge to be buried there. The highly complex cycles of work on which Dandolo spent huge sums of money fill all three rooms of the Baptistery.
